Well I have to admit you've got me confused, John. "I'd have been fine with them speaking English without an accent". Who the hell speaks English without an accent? There are people up and down your country and mine (not to mention other parts of the world) speaking English in a huge range of different accents. So just what do you mean by a BRITISH accent? Because, believe me, there isn't one, there are many.

Well,I don't know exactly how many british accents exist but I do like proper aristocratic british accent,elegant upper speech even while saying the most hilarious jokes ! No american accent can ever equals that ,in my opinion !

point taken Rob. Although if you've ever been to Colorado ( where I spent my childhood )I'd say that is about as bland/accent free an English dialect as you'll hear. But perhaps I have it backwards. As for the English accent I was referring to it was Kenneth Branaugh, you know the actor who does Shakespeare movies among other things. So you can imagine what we yanks call the " proper" English dialect playing a German soldier. Little hard to fathom considering the war. One can only wonder what Churchill would have thought. Kind of funny.
